MEXICO CITY (AP) — Cinema, musical theater and a show worthy of a televised gala were the elements of the tribute to Silvia Pinal organized by her former alma mater, the National Institute of Fine Arts and Literature of Mexico .
“Ay mamacita!” Pinal launched, provoking laughter from the audience. “I feel so emotional right now, I feel full of things… the people who love me, the theater, that I love it.”
The first Mexican actress, from films such as “Viridiana” and “El Ángel exterminador”, danced animatedly in her wheelchair when INBAL director Lucina Jiménez López and Cineteca Nacional general manager Alejandro Pelayo Rangel, gave her an award for her artistic work as a distinguished graduate of the National School of Theatrical Art.
